Some Favorite Recipes of Mine

Hello there!!!

And the sweets continues! Here are some few favorites of mine and my family that I made yesterday night with my little niece Vivian's help ;)

[ My Mini Little Baker - Vivian Huang ]
She is super-duper adorable! Every time she comes down to visit, she'll want to bake with me - LOVE IT!!!

My Favorite & A Few Others - IT'S A MUST TRY recipe! I bet you can't stop popping them in your mouth like me every time I bake them, because I sure ate like 10 non-stop!!! It's sooo good! I strongly suggest DO NOT omit the espresso powder, it enhances the chocolate!!!

These are my family and a few friends favorite! I don't really eat cheesecake, but when I bake, I try a little and it does taste yummie! I always add a little more lemon juice and zest to enhance the flavor a little depending on who I am baking for and my family and a few friends LOVE the extra lemony flavor! ;)

Instead of the Chocolate Chunk, separated the dough into two and made (1) Pretzels M&M's Cookies and (2) White Chocolate, Chocolate and Cranberries Cookies. The dough is super soft and chewy! It's really really yummie! Give it a try and you'll love it.

I got this recipe from a friend, but I added some other spices to it. Scroll down to get the recipe and give it a try. You'll love them as well too! Make it plain, add some mini chocolate chips, or anything you like. It's very yummie! Always my to-go-to Banana Bread Recipe! ;) Make them into a loaf, mini muffins, muffins, squares, etc! I've tried them all and it always turns out yummie!

Thanks for dropping by! I hope you like some of my favorite recipes! Let me know how they turn out if you're trying them by posting a comment - would really appreciate it.

I think I'm baked out a little..hoping to craft soon! ;)

Thank you,
Love always, SMILE!!! MUI HOANG

[ Vegan Banana Bread Recipe ]
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature (or 1/4 cup unsalted butter and 1/4 cup applesauce)
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
2-3 very ripe mashed bananas (about 1 1/2 cups)

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
1 cup walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan (this can be made in any size pan or muffin tins just adjust the baking time).
  2. In a large bowl, mix the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until combined. Mix in the vanilla until combine. If using applesauce, mix that in.
  3. If you like not-too-chunky-bananas, follow this step: On a separate bowl, peel the brown spotty bananas and mashed them using a fork until it is somewhat lumpy. Then add it into the wet mixture and mix it, it will be very liquidly.
  4. On a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice; mix until combine.
  5. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until just  combine (with few flour left is okay).
  6. If you like chunky bananas, follow this step if you've omitted step 3: On a separate bowl, peel the brown spotty bananas and mashed them using a fork leaving some chucks and a lot of lumps. Then fold it into the dough until it is combined - do not overmix.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for about 45-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clear. I like mines a little crispy brown on the top. For mini muffins/squares, I usually bake mine between 12-15 minutes. For regular muffins, I bake mine for about 24-30 minutes. It really depends on your oven.
